Sigurd - Einar's dog

Either chocolate brown or a blue - not decided yet
Neopolitan mastiff's are known for their intelligence, strength and having a high pain tolerance - due to their background as a fighting dog

They're fearless, and known for drooling when excited - which will make for some fun moments in my manga XD

who is invincible except where a leaf fell onto him

A bit like Achiles in Greek Mythology, being dipping in the River Styx except for his heel
I'm incorporating this into his design with a leaf scar/marking on his shoulder
